Richard Wasike

Richard Wasike is considered a native Ugandan who is currently living in Nairobi, Kenya. His paintings are small - but incredibly detailed and very evocative of the moods that are realized viewing the astonishing landscapes of Kenya. 

Wasike was born in western Kenya on the Ugandan border in 1963, during the emergence of Kenya’s independence from the British rule.

His natural talents were discovered at the tender age of five by his father, a fine artteacher. As he grew older, his father encouraged him to paint African landscape using watercolor. After completing his high school education at St. Joseph in Kitale, he joined BIFA in Nairobi to graduate in Fine Arts.

He hopes that when Kenyans admire his paintings of the savanna landscape, the appreciate their environment that surrounds them and not take this beauty for granted.

If you have ever been to Kenya I'm sure you have taken a moment to pause as you gaze into the distance of Africa's 'big sky'. This is the emotion that Wasike seeks to, and successfully captures.

If you like the style of Wasike, you might also like Mr. A. Lizah. His paintings are similar in both theme and ambience.
